|Martin's Corner Goan seafood Cuisine|
Once we arrived, we were happy to see that the restaurant was full of life. The parking lot across the street was full and the restaurant was almost at capacity by 7 PM.
Although we made reservations, we ended up with a horrible tight station by the server station. We ordered drinks and watched the crowd. There were lots of locals and a few tables of tourists. There was a DJ setting up his karaoke station where diners can choose from a large selection of songs and get up in front of the restaurant and sing. I actually did!

With that being said, we ordered all seafood delicacies, there were no land creature on our table. Our server brought us claw cutter and bibs to keep out clothes clean during the dining experience.
From the Chinese starter menu, we went with the Prawn 65, a spicy deep fried dish full of tantalizing flavors.

We splurged quite a bit with the lobster and rock crab. Servers brought out live seafood and we could examine and choose to our liking. The crab was about $36.00 and the lobster was over $50.00.
The King crab could be prepared three different ways, Masala Fried, Butter garlic and Sachin's favoite. We went with the masala fried which is also spicy with powerful ingredients like turmeric, mustard, cayenne, garam masala and coriander.
It sure was messy to eat but soo delicious and worth the efforts,.
The lobster piri piri was also good but I thought it was too overpriced.
We were happy and stuffed at the end of our meal. It was a fun experience and I'm glad we went. Many people say it's overpriced but I loved the ambiance and seeing other locals dine out, get drunk and sing karaoke.
